Interesting fitness facts are posted on our wing. Fitness is a choice but there are a lot of reasons to choose fitness.

Recently, I have gotten into exercise and fitness; however, I am realizing that it is a lifestyle change. This change is not about just working out and eating better, but  it’s the change to choose walking the hill instead of taking the shuttle or eating an apple instead of a cookie.

This lifestyle change is all your choice and it doesn’t take much other than an effort.

Culture can give people a connection to certain social values, beliefs, religions and customs. It allows them to identify with others of similar mindsets and backgrounds. Cultural heritage can provide an automatic sense of unity and belonging within a group and allows us to better understand previous generations and the history of where we come from.

Cultural heritage is made up of many things large and small. We can see it in the buildings, townscapes, and even in archaeological remains. Culture can be perceived through natural sources as well: the agriculture and landscapes associated with it. It is preserved through books, artifacts, objects, pictures, photographs, art, and oral tradition. Cultural heritage is in the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the religions we follow, and the skills we learn. Sometimes we can touch and see what makes up a culture; other times it is intangible.


Take What You Need

Hey everyone we put up a new bulletin board! This Board has a lot of compliments,  encouraging words, and cute pictures! They are all just tapped on and you are encouraged to take any!! This will hopefully help remind you of who you are and that you can be whoever you want to be. Also to encourage you with anything that you have going on.

What are YOU involved in?


On Sunday, I went to Jason and Codie’s Orchestra concert! I really enjoyed the concert and watching them do what they love.

This got me thinking: What are you involved in? If you would like some support, let me know in advance and I will try to be there to support you in your involvement on campus.

It also got me thinking: why get involved? Involvement on and off campus is very crucial to grow yourself. When talking with employers, they always ask what you are involved in and why did you join. I recommend getting involved as much as you can without putting too much on your plate.

If you would like to talk about opportunities for involvement, let me know and I would love to share. Also, I recommend going on pioneerlink to get more information about all the organizations on campus that are possibilities to get involved.

It’s NEVER too late to get involved.

You Got Cash!


Rountree has began the program of You Got Cash! Every week someone randomly will be getting chamber bucks which can be used at local places. If you receive the “You Got Cash” slip, you have one week to get it to Adam (the RD) or Becky (the GA) to redeem your prize.

Make sure you are checking your mailbox weekly, so you don’t loose out on this opportunity!


Goal Setting

Goal Setting is very important to succeed. I highly recommend setting SMART goals. Goals that are: S-specific, M-measurable, A-attainable, R-relevant, and T-time-bound.

Steps to success:

  1. Set Goal
  2. Make Plan
  3. Get to Work
  4. Stick to It
  5.  Reach Goal

Setting Goals are also beneficial for other reasons than just success such as: give directions, energize, provide challenge, and make you think outside the box.

However, goals don’t always succeed for various reasons like: too big, not specific, not written, and to many.
